Had a good workshop session with SPS senior teachers, Megan & Lynn last week to look at links & resources about smart searching, cybersafety, web evaluation & copyright issues. Workshop notes can be found on Interact. Some good discussion on copyright issues particularly what constitutes 'Fair Use' - just because content is out in the public arena doesn't make it public property. How to know what you can use or not use from the Internet? A bit of a curly one... A great opportunity to raise the awareness and the ethical behaviour of our students and even some of our teachers as well. It's not hard to ask permission to use someone's work & it is important to reference and acknowledge sources. The notes on Interact have a lot of links to sites where you can access content that is freely available for use.
